Fan the Fire is a one-day event designed to help teens deepen their relationship with Christ. Each year, hundreds of teens gather to celebrate and learn about their Catholic faith.

Fan the Fire will feature fun and inspirational talks, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, recitation of the Rosary, Eucharistic adoration, a teen Mass, games and entertainment provided by Catholic speaker and recording artist Steve Angrisano. Kevin Donovan and Katie Keogler will lead the music ministry.

Bishop Frank J. Caggiano will be the main celebrant.

“We are extremely excited that Steve and our own Bishop Caggiano are coming to Fan the Fire this year,” said Rodd Blessey, Fan the Fire host. “The event continues to be a fun day for all teens from our diocese and beyond to come together and learn more about their faith.”

Fan the Fire is presented in association with Fan the Fire ministries and the Diocese of Bridgeport.

Cost is $40; includes lunch and dinner. For more information, contact your youth minister or pastor or call Maria Cerdena at (203) 416-1454 or mcerdena@diobpt.orgVisit the Fan the Fire website
